§18B-7-9. Human resources reviews.
(a) The commission and council jointly shall conduct an
initial human resources review of each organization to be carried
out, subject to legislative appropriation, by an external vendor
possessing experience and expertise in conducting these reviews.
The initial review shall be completed by October 1, 2011, and shall
be designed to compare current human resources practices at each
organization to best practices, to identify areas of strength or
deficiency, to identify functions that should be the responsibility
of the human resources department, but are incorrectly assigned or
carried out by other offices within each organization, to assist in
targeting employee training and development, to determine the
degree to which organizations are adhering to state and federal
laws related to human resources administration and to provide data
necessary to guide policymakers in developing personnel rules and
implementing the classification and compensation system.
(b) Following completion of the initial human resources
review, the commission and council jointly shall conduct a
systematic human resources review of each organization at least
once within each five-year period.
(1) The review shall focus on correcting areas of deficiency
identified by previous reviews, on compliance with statutory
mandates contained in this article and articles eight, nine and
nine-a of this chapter and on adherence to personnel rules of the
commission and council.
(2) In the absence of special circumstances, the commission
and council shall provide organizations with reasonable notice
prior to conducting a human resources review and shall identify the
subjects to be examined in the review.
